High Island Spring Migration Birding Tour Guides Volunteer Training
Become equipped to lead birding tours at our High Island Sanctuaries during Spring migration this April and May. Three tours are scheduled a day on Tuesdays and Wednesdays during Spring Migration, and each tour will require two leaders. Strong birding knowledge is helpful, but not necessary. (Although we do welcome and appreciate more experienced birders!)
The training will include topics such as:
• How to work with people in an outdoor setting
• Delivering an engaging presentation
• Birding as a group
• Background information about High Island, Houston Audubon, and the flora and fauna of the Bolivar region of Texas
• Managing group dynamics
• Safety protocols, sanctuary rules
We are offering two training dates for your convenience: Wednesday March 18th and Saturday March 21st.
Volunteers who attend will be expected to commit to leading a minimum of 5 tours during the 2020 Spring Migration season.
